    Those guys have two high frequency amps and an amp on each sub at most. The only ways to run more amps on the subs than you have subs is to run one amp per coil on a multi-coil sub or to strap mutilple amps to a sub (only a few amps are capable of this). I can't think of a setup where you could properly run 3 amps and 2 subs.

    There are 2 more amps on the sides, but they are not sub amps.
